We have done a lot of research on mental health. We wanted to help to the community who is suffering from Trauma. Due to need special education ref to psychiatrists or licensed therapy we can not directly help them but the art center and Homeboy industry has given us an opportunity to help them to provide innovative solutions to their Metal Health care services.
What it does
Homeboy Industries is the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation, and re-entry program in the world. Homeboy Industries is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering formerly incarcerated and gang-involved individuals with a second chance. Each year, thousands are welcomed into Homeboy Industries’ 18-month employment and re-entry program and/or gain access to essential services. Resources include educational programs, legal services, mental health services, laser tattoo removal, and solar panel training.
How I built it
We have used Figma for design and miro for user flow.
Challenges I ran into
We need to balance our time between school and this, due to different schedules. We also needed to adapt quickly to any design and time constraints that we faced, which was our biggest challenge due to the remote nature of this project.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I am proud of the fact that despite the numerous challenges and unfamiliarity we had with each other, we were able to come togther, form an amazing team, and deliver a product that can impact the community greatly.
What I learned
I learned a lot as a high school student working with my seniors. With their help, I was better able to understand and visualize the design process- the start to the end. I have gained inspiration and motivation from their grit and drive, making me excited to one day apply to Art Center too.
What's next for Homeboy
We wanted to add on the product by going back to ideas that were cut due to a lack of time, allowing us to figure our goal and Homeboy.
